Immovilization or stunning under beatings at the slaughterhouse

In some slaughterhouses, cows and pigs are hit hard on their skull until they fall to the ground. On some occasions, as can be seen in the following video, animals can be brutally beaten. Recent investigations have demonstrated that this is a method used extensively across Mexico. In the smaller slaughterhouses, chickens are not always stunned prior to slaughter and are, instead, beaten with a wooden pole prior to being placed in the killing line. It is important to bear in mind that the stunning of animals facilitates the process of bleeding out and, much of the time, when it is used, it is not used to reduce suffering but to simply keep the animals still as they bleed out and thus speed up the process.

These images are part of an investigation carried out in more than 50 slaughterhouses in Mexico between 2015 and 2017.
